50 Things To Be Thankful For Even After Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is great. It's a day for families to get together, to catch up, and to remind people to remember the blessings that they have in their lives. But it's important not to let Thanksgiving be the only day of the year you take to remember the great things you have in your life. This year, the day after Thanksgiving, I decided to think of fifty unconventional little things (besides the obvious family, friends, life, shelter, etc.) that I can remember to enjoy every day of this year. I think it's a fun exercise, and it really reminded me of some of the amazing things in this life.

Here's my list:

  1. Music with meaning
  2. Dogs
  3. Cats
  4. When dogs give you kisses
  5. Colors
  6. The smell of warm cookies
  7. Chocolate
  8. Rainbows
